About

Inspired by the lives of Mary Todd Lincoln and Elizabeth Keckly, Mrs. Lincoln’s freed black seamstress, the story is set in the White House after the assassination of the 16th president. The stigma often associated with Mrs. Lincoln has been etched away to reveal a friendship that both women come to hold dear. This play explores both women’s lives and the primary events that brought them together during a critical moment in our nation’s history. 

This piece is appropriate for ages 10 and up. 

This production was previosly titled THE SILVER LINING, and was changed in development.
